THE ECOFEET APP CREATED BY TEAM ECOCHICKS IS A FUN GAME THAT COMBINES EDUCATION OF POSITIVE ENVIRONMENTAL CHOICES WITHIN A FUN CONTEXT.
See them on ABC News October 2016
Profits generated from the small purchase fee will be donated to selected environmental programs. The team’s vision is that EcoFeet will influence people to make smart choices to minimise their impact on the environment and animals we share it with.
Upon completion of the prototype the team for the TechGirls Are Superheroes competition they shared their pitch video on the school facebook page, with teachers, families and leaders of Tangalooma EcoMarines (a registered charity who work to improve the water quality of waterways and adjacent environs throughout southeast Queensland). Tangalooma EcoMarines were so impressed with the girls App which helped to ‘spread the word’ about making smart environmental decisions, they shared the pitch video on their website immediately. One of our team members, Lily Pitman was a finalist in a Healthy Waterways competition in July and proudly told them about her next project: the EcoFeet App which they also shared on their website. The girls have also been contacted by Urban Utilities who would like to meet the team behind the App and discuss other ideas they have to improve the local environment in which we live. The girls have been overwhelmed with the support and encouragement received for their App which they know will fill a big gap in the market and the marketing campaign hasn’t even commenced yet !
The girls are taking a well-earned break after completing their TGM submission but have lots of friends asking when the App will be available as they are keen to download and play it so stay tuned for the release date which is coming soon…….
